Enjoy the unique experience of a trip to Whittier, Alaska, driving the longest combined vehicle-railroad tunnel in North America!

The tunnel will be closing early from April 20 through April 24,
and from April 28 through April 30.
The tunnel will close at 9:15 PM, and will open at 7:00 AM each day.

This alternate schedule is necessary to provide time for the ARRC to make rail repairs inside the tunnel prior to the Summer passenger schedule. The ARRC may not need all of the time scheduled. If the ARRC completes their work earlier than anticipated, notice will be publish reflecting a resumption of normal operations. The tunnel will move to the Summer schedule May 1, 2015, but will open at 7:00 AM, but close at the normally scheduled time. The tunnel is expected to operate on the Summer schedule by May 2, 2015. Thank you for your understanding.
